Growing up, Meredith had a weird fascination with Beethoven and saw Lord of the Rings around nine times in theaters. She even says she dated her first boyfriend because he looked like Samwise Gamgee from Lord of the Rings.

Meredith describes herself in high school as a nerd with glasses, braces, and a mustache. She attended Pinckney High School in Pinckney, Michigan. Meredith was also involved in Twin Masks Youth Theatre during her high school years. She graduated college in 2009 from the University of Michigan.

She has a brother named David, to whom she appears (according to her Twitter) to be very close. She says that he was the one who taught her how to be funny.

Meredith now lives in Chicago, where most of the StarKid shows are performed. She's also done lots of stand-up comedy for different clubs and bars. She recently announced her engagement to Brian Holden, a fellow Starkid.

Meredith has been a part of Team StarKid since their beginning production of Little White Lie, where she played Meredith, the drummer (and lead singer when Tayna was kicked out) for the Hot Girls.

Since then she has done many other things with Team StarKid. Meredith played the part of Ultrabeam Megagirl in Starship. She played many various roles in Holy Musical B@man, including Dr. Chase Meridian, The Riddler, T.G.I. Fridays Worker, Rachel Dawes, Hostage, The Earth, and Wonder Woman. She replaced Bonnie as Hermione in A Very Potter Senior Year (and did an absolutely terrific job despite not being quite the Hermione we all know and love. Nobody else could have done Bonnie justice.). She also played Scherrezade (and other ensemble parts) in Twisted. Meredith was included in the SPACE tour and the Apocalyptour.

Meredith is also part of the band Jim and the Povolos, where she sings and plays the bongos. The band was said to have started out on the floor in her apartment as they all made hotdogs. She wrote the song "The Holiday Club" with her friend Denise Donovan (who wrote all the silly lyrics, she said), another StarKid. Meredith is also usually hungry.
